I won the grand prize!

Last weekend I received amazing news -- that I won the Grand Prize (an unrestricted monetary award of $5,000) in the Dave Bown Projects 6th Semiannual Competition. The jurors were Marisa J. Pascucci, Curator of 20th Century & Contemporary Art at the Boca Raton Museum of Art; Reto Thüring, Associate Curator of Contemporary Art at the Cleveland Museum of Art; and Adelina Vlas, Assistant Curator for Modern & Contemporary Art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I am honored to be chosen by curators from such esteemed institutions, and I am so grateful to Dave Bown for creating this award. I am already putting the money to good use - on materials for new work for two upcoming solo exhibitions. Exhibition announcements coming soon!
